SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) – Authorities are investigating a crash on Highway 4 Tuesday morning where at least one person has died.
The scene is near Stanley Road on Highway 4.
California Highway Patrol responded to the scene a little before 6:30 a.m. to investigate a head-on crash. Officers found a pickup truck and a sedan had been involved in a crash.
